Ann Solyst

Ann works in hard pastel on toned paper, drawing imaginary animals in a naturalistic style. After blocking in a simple yet precise outline in charcoal she adds layers of colors, meticulously refining her drawing until her animals look believable. Ann’s work is grounded in technique without becoming stiff and rather than focusing on realism, she works towards believability, selecting only those details that add to the overall effectiveness of her whimsical yet classic art.
